#3 with a bullet. Awesome.

Seconding HH! Congrats, Professor.

And also, Volokh must tank. I’ve been deeply conflicted about this, but when I go there now I see WaPo advertising pushing things such as Justice Stevens’s anti-Second-Amendment positions.

    Can you expand on this a bit?

    The VC explained why they made the move/merger with WaPo and I thought it was an interesting move. Personally, I grumble a bit because my work web filter blocks the WaPo comments section. While the posts are interesting, I always enjoyed the VC comments section.

    Without the comments section, I’ll just pick ’em up on RSS.

      The conservative blogsphere fills an important counterpoint in getting information into the public discourse in a thoughtful, comprehensive way that is fairly rare in the major media.

      It bugs me to see — positioned on the Volokh page, where research has shown is the primary position to catch the eye, and enhanced more by clever font/color/spacing design — advertising for WaPo articles that push the liberal position or else the trendy infotainment that characterizes so much of the news these days. For readers who come to a Volokh article from a search engine, there are no blurbs or titles that might spark an interest in reading more Volokh; instead there’s just that cleverly-placed advertising designed to solicit the reader away from Volokh and into WaPo’s other pages.

    I think VC was suckered, and has been neutered. Lesson to be learned from that, Herr Professor.

    Good idea to have your own ad guy, btw.

Advertisers pay a premium for those stats. You should consider hiring a sales guy on a consignment basis. You’ll make a tidy sum.

Kind of funny that the academic legal profession is overwhelming leftist, but the top 4 law professor blogs are either libertarian or conservative. I guess it speaks to the unmet demand in the classroom for professors other than trotskyists and obamabots.

I heard Instapundit once donated $1,000 to support Prop 8 in California. Ain’t sayin’, just sayin’.

Your hard work has not gone unnoticed. Thank you, and congrats to the LI crew.

Kudos and keep it going – please.
